Exclamation [Q] Samsung GT-I9100T Soft Bricked?

Hi everyone,

I had Cyonongenmod and wanted to go back to the stock ROM so I downloaded Telstra 4.1.2 Australian firmware for GT-I9100T and Odin 1.85. Then tried to flash it and got the error

<ID:0/009> Added!!
<ID:0/009> Odin v.3 engine (ID:9)..
<ID:0/009> File analysis..
<ID:0/009> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/009> Initialzation..
<ID:0/009> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/009> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/009> factoryfs.rfs
<ID:0/009> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/009>
<ID:0/009> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

I have tried this process with two computers, tried reinstalling drivers multiple times and changing USB ports.

When I try and boot normally or into recovery mode I get the error:
Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.

So I tried with Kies and Kies said connecting continusaly and never connected with my phone and I also tried this with 2 computers.

What can I do?

So I followed the guide on the website and then I got to flashing the PIT file part and I was able to successfully flash the PIT file which I got from the internet and my log was:

<ID:0/009> Added!!
<ID:0/009> Odin v.3 engine (ID:9)..
<ID:0/009> File analysis..
<ID:0/009> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/009> Initialzation..
<ID:0/009> Set PIT file..
<ID:0/009> DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
<ID:0/009> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/009> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/009> RQT_CLOSE !!
<ID:0/009> RES OK !!
<ID:0/009> Completed..
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)
<ID:0/009> Removed!!
<ID:0/009> Added!!

Then I tried to flash the firmware again and it still failed, this time I was using ODIN 3.04. Also I have found that odin gets stuck on SetupConnection requiring me to remove the phone, take out the battery, put it back in download mode and start again every time I want to flash.

You need to go back to Hopper's thread (stickied in General; did you even find it & read it as suggested in the first instance ?) & go through all (and I mean all) the troubleshooting steps as many times as you need to in order to get a successful flash.

The reality is, nobody here can fix this for you, only you can. In that thread you have the tools to do exactly that, assuming it isn't a hardware issue, which the majority of these cases aren't.

You shouldn't have flashed a PIT (I don't care what you read on some other site, or in another guide on here which doesn't apply to your situation but you thought it did). You only flash PIT's in very specific circumstances; you do not flash them purely because you want to go back to stock & you're having problems with same. There's some chance flashing the PIT may have corrupted your NAND; if that's the case you'll need a motherboard replacement.

The only way you'll know whether that's the case or not is trying everything in Hopper's thread over and over and over (including with multiple PC's over several days), if you're still unable to get a successful flash at that point, it probably is NAND corruption
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

I don't think he *did* visit hoppers thread.....or if he did, he didn't read it properly.......
Hoppers thread advises AGAINST using pit files.....so he would have known NOT to try it.......
